New Video: How to Create Accents with Alcohol Ink

Hi, friends!

Do you like beautiful butterflies and dragonflies? Then you are going our latest video!

Bev and I have been playing around with the Build a Dragonfly and Classy Butterflies dies. We figured out a fun way to use alcohol inks with glossy cardstock to make your own accents with the dies! These pretty accents are easy to make and will look amazing on your cards and scrapbook pages.

Watch Bev's video for the scoop!

(Can't see the video? Go here to watch it on our website!)

I was so inspired by our video that I made a few cards. These cards feature a slight variation on the butterflies shown in the video. 

Here I used alcohol inks to simply add color to a solid butterfly cut from glossy cardstock.

Hello Inked Butterfly Card for Technique Tuesday

I used it on a card, but imagine using several butterflies like mine to decorate a scrapbook page or the cover of a journal. You could even cut and color several of them and then string them together to make a garland for a party or to decorate your craft space. 

And here I used alcohol inks to add color to some intricate butterflies cut with the Classy Butterflies dies rather than solid ones.

Hello Friend Butterflies Card for Technique TuesdayDon't they look neat? Want your intricate butterflies to really stand out on your card or scrapbook page? Consider die-cutting some solid bodies from vellum or glitter paper and placing them behind the intricate butterflies. 

I hope you too are inspired to play by this fun, new video! Please share your projects with us on Instagram or Facebook. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag when you share your projects!

Learn How to Paint Stamped Images with Distress Inks

Hi, friends!

Like to add color to your stamped images? We've got something for you today! 

Flower stamps from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comJulie has put together another coloring technique video. In this video, she will show you how to paint with Distress Inks. This technique is so much fun. All you need is a few Distress Ink pads, a stamping block, a water pen and an image stamped with waterproof ink.

Julie uses the Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies in the video, but this technique works wonderfully with many of the flower stamps in the Greenhouse Society collection. Not a fan of flowers? You could even use this technique to color in the many critters from the Animal House collection of stamps and dies. 

See the Video

We hope you are inspired by Julie's video to give her technique a try and to make a card (or scrapbook page). If you do, please share your project with us! Leave a link to it comments or post it on Facebook or Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.

New Video: Masking Magic in 3 Easy Steps!

Hey, everyone!

Bev here today with a new stamping tutorial!

This tutorial is a bit unusual! Usually masking tutorials feature a pretty flower or a cuddly bear. Not today… I decided this masking tutorial should feature a bale of hay. Kinda weird, right? Anyway, I hope you will watch the video to see how I transformed that bale of hay into a pile of hay bales across several cards. Plus you’ll also learn how you can use these 3 easy steps with flowers and cuddly animal stamps too!
